SASE Supports the New Normal of Work from Anywhere

This paper from Dell’Oro Group discusses the key drivers behind the work from anywhere trend and why traditional wide area network (WAN) and virtual private network (VPN) approaches no longer work. Based on engaging a leading communications service provider, Dell’Oro describes the requirements that enterprises need to consider as they shift towards cloud-based networking and security. They propose that two technologies, SD-WAN and cloud-based secure web gateway (SWG), are merging to satisfy the new requirements and are the basis of a new solution called secure access service edge (SASE).
